Ropar, April 12

The district police recovered a huge quantity of hooch from a nearby forest area on the Himachal border after a hooch manufacturing unit was unearthed near Anandpur Sahib here today.

A few local mediapersons informed the local police about the ‘illicit liquor factory’, following which SHO Shivinder Pal Singh raided the spot. The unidentified accused, however, fled the spot leaving several drums full of hooch, which was destroyed by the police team.

It was around 12.30 pm when a few mediapersons informed the police and a team of police officials, led by the SHO, raided the place. Being the hilly terrain the Punjab Police was not sure about the territory and authorities in Himachal Pradesh were also informed. Thirtysix drums, majority of which were filled with hooch, were found on the spot.

Soon after a police team from Himachal Pradesh, led by Kot Kahlur SHO Kuldeep Singh, also arrived at the spot. The SHO said there was already a hooch smuggler from Himachal Pradesh active in the area who had already been booked in several such cases. He said probably the smuggler had started his activities again due to forthcoming elections. Ropar SSP Swapan Sharma said it was found that the area was in Himachal and further action would be taken by the Himachal police.
